“People may doubt what you say, but they will always believe what you do.” –Nannie Helen Burroughs
How many times have you said you were going to “try” to do something (you fill in the “something”), only to fail? How many times has someone told you they were going to “try” to do something, and didn’t do “it”?
Do or Do Not, There is No Try
Food for thought:
Many of us languish under a consciousness of “I’ll try.” Just two little words; so enabling, yet so inhibiting.
Trying is usually an excuse for not doing. It is a concept employed to justify self-defeat. For example, have you ever “tried” to sleep at night? If you did, you awoke the next morning groggy and listless. Have you ever “tried” to lose weight? If so, the only thing that you probably lost was time. Just “try” to quit smoking. So many smokers do as they light up another cigarette. “Trying to quit” means you’re still smoking and working like hell not to. If you “try” to do something, you’re expending a great deal of energy on activity, not accomplishment. And accomplishment is the bottom line.
In the real world there are no A’s for effort, only for results. If you doubt me, just “try” to sit down — either you do or you don’t. I know many college dropouts who “tried” to complete their degrees. Remember, the world will judge you – not “try” to judge you – by your actions, not your intentions. –Dennis Kimbro

My mother taught me very early to believe I could achieve any accomplishment I wanted to. The first was to walk without braces. –Wilma Rudolph
